Winemaker's Notes:

This Pinot Noir is a blend of LIVE Certified Sustainable fruit from Ponzi's Aurora, Madrona and Avellana Vineyards along with Linda Vista, Gran Moraine, Gemini, Zena West and Alloro Vineyards.

Ripe plum, roses, almond extract, clove and anise stand out in this inviting and ever-changing nose. The full mouth of sweet black cherries balanced with high notes of blueberry and pomegranate finishes with soft and silky tannins.
